ROME — Fort Stanwix National Monument invites you to a special evening candlelight tour through the fort on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Tours will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The program, “Mystery, Myths, & Mayhem” will explore how the soldiers and families of Fort Stanwix lived in fear every day they served at the wilderness outpost during the American Revolution.
If you’re fascinated by bone-chilling tales, especially at this time of the year, come to this candlelight program and learn of three actual events that made life at the fort terrifying, both day and night.
All visitors to the park should meet at the Visitor Center for a guided walk through the fort.
Tours will leave from the rear door of the Visitor Center at 6:30, 6:50, 7:10, 7:30 and 7:50 p.m.
